Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

By the time Dean and Bobby get there, Cold Oak is a graveyard of psychic kids. Sam’s long gone.

That night, Dean dreams of his brother.

Sam’s hunched over, face lost in the shadows, mumbling, “Had to kill him, had to, it was self-defense-”

“I get it,” Dean agrees gently, crouching down next to him. “Lesser of two evils, right?”

Sam looks up, mouth twisted into a self-loathing smirk. “Don’t think I qualify as the lesser of any evils anymore,” he says hoarsely. Sam’s eyes aren’t yellow. Just …

Dean jerks awake, heart hammering, and tries Sam’s cell again.

Wow. That hit hard. If Dean hadn't showed up it could have happened. Great drabble!

Thanks, tifaching! 30 minutes later, 15 minutes earlier - and canon would be entirely changed.

Loved it! I like looking at what could have been. This would be a great plot for a longer fic, too.

Thanks, doylescordy! I think this is one where I'd prefer to let it just echo in the silence, so readers can take it where they will.
